Hi all, I thought I would add my 2 cents worth.  Recently I tried 1906 Midnight chocolates, with such a small noticeable difference that I would never buy them again.
Yes, they were pricey. I had never used any pot products before.
What works for some might not work for others, so you can always try it, [...]. I wish you the best on this road to  recovery/freedom.

I have to use CBD with CBN and melatonin or else it does nothing . I use it now before I take my cannabis drop . My sleep never returned so last May at 2 .5 years off my fam and my therapist staged a sort of intervention and I went back on my cannabis drops. microdosing at 7-10 mgs.

I was in extremely bad shape before that  and while I wished I my sleep would have returned, I just ran out of time to keep waiting . I had to go back to work and live and 90 minutes -3 hours was not enough and I was very sick .

 I use only 100% indica gummies ( NO sativa or even ind/sat hybrids) with CBN in them also and I switch different brands /varieties alot to keep any possible tolerance at bay . Its not perfect but it is so much better .. I have been a cannabis user for decades though and knew what to use

Each ml contains 30mg of CBD, 10mg of CBG, and 10mg of CBN.
Ingredients: Organic Hempseed Oil, Organic Coconut MCT Oil, Full Spectrum Hemp Extract.

They also make capsules for those that don't like the oil

Their Sleep Capsules are specifically crafted for everyday use. Their effective blend of full spectrum CBD, CBG, and CBN works hard (with functional ingredients like lemon balm and passion flower) to target and reduce restlessness, promote healthier sleeping habits, and encourage a full [...]’s rest. Convenient and consistent, these 50mg capsules are perfect for any nightly routine seeking to maintain a regulated sleeping pattern.

Each capsule contains 30mg of CBD, 10mg of CBG, and 10mg of CBN.

Hey [...],

Yes, I'd say I'm as close to 100% as possible. 

I started feeling better between month 9 and 10 after my cold turkey and I felt like I was 100% at 24 months off.  I've had zero symptoms for about 4 years now other than some off nights of sleep here and there but that is to be expected as recovering from Benzos doesn't heal preexisting conditions and insomnia was the reason I went on Benzos in the first place.

Thanks [...]. It is good ppl like you stick around to help and encourage others (I am still pretty sick and struggling). When you finally stopped, how crappy did you feel? Besides the insomnia , what was the worst sx you got from the benzos? I just went back and read your signature. How long did the skin burning last for you?

AB7,

When I did my CT, the zero nights kicked in right away and I had like 5 nights in a row without any perceived sleep.  I was really freaked out because I thought I would die from lack of sleep (not true).  I had all sorts of people (family and friends) telling me it would either kill me or shorten my life span (again not true).  Then the other symptoms started kicking in...anxiety, depression, DP/DR, claustrophobia, sound sensitivity, muscle spasms/twitching, GI issues, burning skin, etc.  Not sleeping amplified all of these symptoms and made them worse.  The burning skin was pretty persistent for about 2 months but then it slowly faded.  Like everything else it was UP and down and some days it was way worse than other days just like some days I got some sleep and other days I didn't.

My sleep and symptoms were at their worst around month 3 after I jumped and stayed pretty intense (with a lot of UPs and downs) until between month 9-10 off, then I started noticing some nice, gradual, steady improvement with sleep and symptoms.  Everything kept improving between month 10 and 24.  Month 24 is when I considered myself as close to 100% healed as possible.  I wrote a success story at 15 months off, but kept making steady improvement with sleep after that.  All of my symptoms were pretty much gone by month 15 except for some mild tinnitus and very mild anxiety, depression and some DP/DR and brain fog.  All of that was completely gone by month 24.  The only thing I had left was an off [...] of sleep every month or 2.

I had a semi-decent day here and there that I didn't recognize as a window until later on.  Those started about 6 months after my CT.  I did Dr. Coleman's Flumazenil treatment about 7 weeks after my CT.  I didn't see any immediate relief, but I think in reduced the overall length and intensity of my symptoms (it's my own theory/thinking that I can't prove)?

My worst symptoms were insomnia, claustrophobia, anxiety, GI issues, burning skin and sound issues...in that order of worst to what bothered me the least.

Sorry you're still struggling...you'll see gradual, slow improvement over time!

Thanks [...]. I know someone personally who did the Flumazenil treatment at the Coleman Institute after she had been off K for approx. 3 months. I am glad it helped you, but it made her much worse. In fact, she got so bad until she reinstated klonopin and is now at 4 mgs and still really sick to this day. I admire the ppl who can endure the pain long enough until the body can naturally, albeit slowly, reverse things and restore homeostasis and bring relief without the drug's interference.

How much did the Flumazenil treatment cost you?

Luckily I had relatives that live close to Richmond, VA that were able to take me daily to Dr. Coleman's office for the Flumazenil treatment.  It was a wearable pump that slowly pumped flumazenil into the belly fat just above your waist.  I had to go daily for monitoring and checkups.  Dr. Coleman was a very nice man with a "cool" Australian accent! With the round trip air fare it was about $7,000 for the Flumazenil treatment.  And as I said, it did not provide any immediate relief but I think it helped reduce the length of time I was in WD?

Thanks [...]. Please PM me the name of the Company and the website URL. I would live to visit the website and browse around some. You also said some of the things are reasonably priced. I may decide to give something a shot, IDK tho.

 I am interested in hearing experiences with small doses of THC as well.
